Common fertilisers such as NPK (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) and potassium nitrate play an important role in promoting healthy plant growth and maximizing crop yield.
NPK fertiliser consists of three main nutrients: nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). Each nutrient has a different role in plant growth. Nitrogen helps with leaf growth, phosphorus helps with root growth and flowering, and potassium supports overall plant vigor and disease resistance.
Potassium nitrate, commonly known as KNO3, is a special type of fertilizer that provides both potassium and nitrogen to plants. It consists of potassium (K), nitrate (NO3) and oxygen (O). Potassium stimulates a variety of essential plant functions, including water absorption, enzyme activation, and photosynthesis. On the other hand, nitrogen supports vegetative growth and protein synthesis.
These fertilizers are used in a wide variety of applications in agriculture, horticulture and horticulture. NPK fertilisers are often used to compensate for nutrient deficiencies in the soil, especially when growing crops such as vegetables, fruits, and grains. Supplying essential nutrients ensures balanced nutrition of the plant and thus improves product quality, increases yield and resistance to diseases and pests.
Potassium nitrate has been used in a variety of situations due to its dual nutritional benefits. It is often used in hydroponics and greenhouse cultivation because it dissolves easily in water and plants can easily use it. In addition, it is also used to feed plants that consume potassium.
